Brewers stun Dodgers early, extend NLCS with 7-run outburst in Game 6

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start When Freese hit a home run against Wade Miley to begin Friday’s game, the Dodgers seized an early 1-0 lead. After Aguilar’s double into right field scored Cain and Braun in the bottom of the first inning, the Dodgers trailed 2-1. They never led again.“Aggie’s hit … you couldn’t describe it as any bigger,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “It lifted the roof off the plate. The rest of the game, whenever we got a scoring situation, it got loud, and I thought it helped us. It put a crazy amount of energy in the dugout and made it a lot of fun.”“You can feel that as a player,” Moustakas said. “You feed off it.”Related Articles Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season MILWAUKEE — A glass pedestrian walkway connects the Riverside Theater to a commercial building across the street on the bank of the Milwaukee River. The timing of this weekend’s featured concert made for an interesting juxtaposition: A “Let’s Go Brewers” banner hung in the glass walkway, while “Three Nights With Widespread Panic” was spelled across the theater’s marquee.By beating the Dodgers 7-2 in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series on Friday night, the Brewers canceled the first night of widespread panic across Southeast Wisconsin.It was a breakout performance that could have come sooner, but not any later, for the Brewers’ withering offense. Jesus Aguilar and Mike Moustakas doubled against Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu. Lorenzo Cain, Erik Kratz and Orlando Arcia all singled. Ryan Braun walked. And that was just the first inning.“One (run) would’ve been great. Two would’ve been awesome. To put up four right there gives us a little confidence,” Moustakas said. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire center_img Milwaukee sent nine batters to the plate in the first inning, six more in the second, and had turned the lineup over twice by the end of the third. Ryu’s day ended there, the Dodgers trailing 5-1.It was reminiscent of the Brewers team that averaged 4.6 runs per game in the regular season. It was not reminiscent of anything the Dodgers had seen to this point in the postseason. After they scored 16 runs in the first five games of the NLCS, the Brewers’ seven-run outburst amounted to an ambush.“To score four right there was very encouraging,” Braun said. “Inspiring to us for the rest of the game.”Perhaps the announced crowd of 43,619 at Miller Park thought they had seen this play before.The Brewers were trailing the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 in the 2011 NLCS when that series shifted back to Milwaukee for Game 6. David Freese hit a home run in the first inning for the Cardinals, who eliminated the Brewers with a 12-6 win. Aguilar was a one-man wrecking crew, going 3 for 4 with two doubles and three RBIs. Counsell stuck with his best hitter, Christian Yelich, in the number-2 spot in the lineup despite a .150 batting average in the series. Yelich’s second-inning double was his first extra-base hit in the series. Cain and Braun each finished 2 for 4, and every starting position player reached base at least once.Now the more pressing historic parallel stretches to October 1982, when only two men on the Dodgers’ roster were alive.The Brewers lost the first two games of the best-of-five American League Championship Series that year to the Angels before the series shifted back to Milwaukee. Back-to-back wins pushed the series to a do-or-die Game 5 at County Stadium. After eight innings Milwaukee led 4-3, needing three outs to clinch a trip to the World Series.The Brewers’ owner, Bud Selig, was still clutching a pair of cigars in the ninth inning for good luck when Rod Carew grounded out to end the game, and the series.“The place was rocking,” Selig recalled.So it was again Friday.
